EPOS B20 review: A solid streaming microphone with odd design choices

This $200 mic delivers great quality sound but doesn’t make it easy for you

The B20 is a high quality microphone with great build quality and sound clarity, but its bizarre gain dial is a huge design flaw that we hope is fixed in future iterations of the hardware.

  • Brilliantly clear sound quality in optimal conditions
  • Solid build quality and stylish look
  • Has its own optional software for more fine tuning
  • You can't tell at a glance what your gain setting is
  • $50 pricier than the similarly performing Blue Yeti
3 / 5
